Colwyn Bay fell out of favour as Llandudno excelled itself, the battle was lost decades ago, did Marks & Spencer choose to come to Colwyn Bay? We blame the council, the A55, the landlords who don’t even live in the country converting our lovely late Victorian buildings to the bedsit land we know today but that’s the way it went & there’s nothing we can do to change that. I love a good grumble at how my home town has fallen by the wayside but that’s exactly what has been allowed to happen by the powers that be & no amount of facebook causes will change that.
There’s only one winner, time to rethink? Is that what’s happening now? New beach, new concrete skip? Is there going to be new town centre? Green spaces? Zero tolerance to anti social behaviour? Incentives to attract business back to Colwyn Bay? As far as I’m concerned it’s all up in the air as is our once magnificent piers future. A new identity & something nowhere else offers, is this the way forward for our beloved Bay?
